PICTURE PERFECT: FREE TOOLS
A picture speaks a thousand words.
This could not be more true when it comes to building your online hustle. The likes of Instagram and Pinterest have created an online language spoken almost entirely in curated photos.
But not everyone is a photographer, who spends their days travelling around the world taking incredible shots. And traditionally stock image sites have only provided expensive or cheesy posed images.
Founded 4 years ago as a humble Tumblr blog, Unsplash has grown into an industry-leading photography community. It’s become a source of inspiration for everyone from award-winning writers like Deepak Chopra to industry-titans like Apple, and millions of creators worldwide. ~ www.unsplash.com
All images are free download with weekly curated collections and the option to save your favourite images to your own collections.
When you start to need a bigger selection of unique images at a reasonable price point, you need to check out OFFSET. It is the baby sister of Shutterstock with weekly updates from award winning photographers.
Founded in a belief that no one holds the rights to inspiration, we believe everyone should have the ability to tell amazing stories. Offset is a truly unique collection that combines the best of both worlds—images you want to use, at prices that allow you to do just that. ~ www.offset.com
Creating a strong image driven brand online could not be easier by starting with tools like these, so go forth and hashtag boldly!
